Apple has been making good progress with Apple Music, which it has been working on, and that’s enough to keep Cook happy for a while. Recently, according to an industry source who spoke to Digital Music News, Apple Music has now surpassed Spotify’s subscriber count in the United States.
The anonymous source, said to be a major U.S.-based distributor, is said to have shared a report with the website detailing the subscriber tallies of several streaming music services, including Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and Sirius XM.
While Sirius XM satellite radio boasts 33 million subscribers, tallies for both Apple Music and Spotify now stand at around 20 million paying subscribers each in the U.S., with Apple “now a hair ahead,” according to the Digital Music News report.
Subscribers of Apple Music are growing faster, partly because consumers have more and more Apple products.
From the start, Apple Music was perfectly positioned to become a force in the music streaming world, but even so, its growth has exceeded expectations. Apple Music reportedly reached the “20 million” milestone in barely more than three years, versus Spotify which was founded way back in 2006 and entered the U.S. in 2011.
In May, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple Music had over 50 million users worldwide on either paid subscriptions or free trials. However, that figure still put Apple Music some ways off Spotify, which said it had 75 million paying subscribers as of March 31. Spotify has a much larger total of at least 170 million active users due to the free, ad-supported tier that it offers.
Now it seems the world’s most popular Music Player has changed its crown, which one you are using?
